The demise of the Family and the self destruction of The West.
This is a well produced video highlighting the ways that our western culture’s choices over the past few decades are leading to our own decline. We’ve somehow forgotten or ignored the importance of the family, and that may turn out to be the cause of our demise of our civilization.
A lot of debate is going on right now about gay marriage. I myself feel rather resigned to the fact that it’s legalization and normalization is going to happen though. I think that we lost the battle to save traditional marriage some time a go really. Marriage is already such a corrupted institution that legalization of gay marriage hardly matters. On-demand, “no-fault” divorce, which means that marriage is now just a unilateral contract; lack of social expectations that the marriage will result in children; the mass choice of women to exit the home and enter the exchange economy as income earners; the farming out of children to day care centers; and a laundry list of other social upheavals means that defenders of the institution against the legalization of homosexual marriage are manning one rampart while the fortress has already been breached in a dozen other places.
“In our time Greece was visited by a dearth of children and general decay of population …. This evil grew upon us rapidly, and without attracting attention, by our men becoming, perverted to a passion for show and money and the pleasures of an idle life.”
- Polybius circa 140 BC.
